SUBJECT: Sanitary Sewer Easement for Kemira Chemicals, Inc.

INITIATED BY: Department of Engineering


Recommendation: Approval is requested to enter into an agreement with Kemira Chemicals, Inc. and the Development Authority of Columbus, Georgia for a 20' wide sanitary sewer easement across Canal Street and other properties.

Background: Kemira Chemicals Inc. had to replace a sanitary sewer that services their facilities and tie to the public system owned by the Columbus Water Works across Bull Creek. In order to this they had to cross Canal Street. Portions of the property are owned by the City of Columbus and other portions owned by the Development Authority of Columbus, Georgia.

Analysis: Kemira Chemicals Inc. has already performed the work under the proper permits but desires to obtain a permanent easement for future maintenance needs and property records. The Development Authority has already agreed to the easement but desires to wait on Council approval for final execution.

Financial Considerations: The ongoing maintenance of the sanitary sewer will be at the expense of Kemira Chemicals, Inc.

Projected Annual Fiscal Impact Statement: None for the City.

Legal Considerations: The agreement requires Council authorization.

Recommendations/ Actions: Approve the resolution authorizing the City Manager to enter into an agreement with Kemira Chemicals, Inc. and the Development Authority of Columbus, Georgia for a 20' wide sanitary sewer easement across Canal Street and other properties.
